Lodowic Underhill was my gg grandmother Sarah Jones Dow's stepfather having married my ggg grandmother Anne Dickerson.
Lodowic( also spelled Ladovic) joined the Civil War Il 64th Volunteer Infantry Regiment ( Company A ) in 1861.
This unit was also known as Yate's Sharpshooters- apparently for their accurate shooting abilities- The Governor at that time had the last name of Yates.
Lodowic's Civil War records state that he enlisted with Col. John Morrill of Dayton, Il( My mother and her family lived in Dayton, Il- a very small little town).
In My research I was disappointed to be unable to find a picture of Lodowic but I did find a picture of Col. John Morrill.( on the right)
To find Lodowic's Civil War record on the Illinois archives data base was a very thrilling treasure.
